Whirlygig Cinema is hosting Making Tracks, a unique live cinematic event that will combine new short films from up-and-coming filmmakers with live music from The Cabinet of Living Cinema at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green, East London at 7:30pm on Thursday 9 December.
Katie Steed of Whirlygig Cinema said, “There is a trend at the moment for seeing old films re-scored live, people love that sort of thing. This is an exciting opportunity for new filmmakers to be given the chance to have their work treated in this way.”
Making tracks will bring together a diverse collection of filmmaking talent including animation, abstract and experimental video and silent film homages. The event will give filmmakers who have had problems with music copyright the chance to have their work screened in public.
Many of the filmmakers will attend the event in person and will hear the new scores for the first time. Katie said: “They will also be able to keep the recording of the Cabinet’s score so their films can be shown again.”
Making Tracks will take place again in the Rich Mix Bar on Friday 14 January 2011 as part of the London Short Film Festival when the programme will also include a handful of films from past festival entrants.
Rich Mix Bar, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA
